We love a well-organized collection, which is why it is always a thrill to investigate the collecting and organizing preferences of clients, like Randy A. of Sacramento, California. Randy has been collecting vinyl for the past few years and organizes his collection with a set of Vertical A-Z Mrs Eaves Record Dividers, and recently added a pair of genre record dividers to straighten out his new arrivals. Read on for Randy's interview!

Victoria Smith, lifestyle blogger and editor of sfgirlbybay recently shared a few of her vinyl finds with me in a quick interview about her collection, her favorites, and why she likes vinyl records. A few months ago we got together for an early afternoon of cocktails and vinyl, which Victoria shared over at sfgirlbybay.

Over the summer I started reading a fantastic blog– My Husband’s Stupid Record Collection. Guys, spoiler alert: She is a lady, writing about music. How unsettling! How dare she! (Just kidding, but not all of the internet took kindly to this bold crazy move).
I felt a connection with Sarah, because in addition to being charmed by her writing, we’ve both experienced the odd atmosphere of this SERIOUS boys club that is the music-industry-audiophile-vinyl-collecting world. Sense of humor intact, Sarah isn’t going to let the boys club keep her from having feelings or writing about them– she reviews music as she experiences it, which is you know, sort of the whole point of music… experience.
Anyway, this summer I wrote her a fan letter and after a few email exchanges, and a well-timed trip across the country, Sarah and I (and her husband, Alex) had the chance to meet in person over lunch. Now I can say we're internet friends and real-time friends. I interviewed Sarah on some of her favorite vinyl albums… her answers are below!

Back in September of 2014 I visited the Oakland home of Lisa Congdon & Clay Walsh to check out their small, but growing record collection. Though they’ve only been collecting vinyl for a year, both Lisa and Clay have a long history with vinyl, spanning back to childhood, listening to records with their families. Lisa and Clay shared some of their favorite nostalgic albums, and let me dig through their stack of vinyl in their sun drenched Oakland home. Soon these two will be moving to Portland, where their collection will almost certainly grow. (Portland has some excellent vinyl shops, ladies!) Lisa and Clay shared a bit about their collection, styled in the photos above with genre record dividers.

Lawrence C. sent us a photo of his record collection, organized with his recent purchase, a set of Horizontal 6 panel Stencil Record Dividers, shown above.
Lawrence shared, “I’m looking for some old Raffi records to share with my new daughter. My set-up: Sherwood S-7800 receiver from John Varvatos’ vintage collection, Sony PS-X500 turntable from my father-in-law, and Advent speakers from an estate sale…for $10!”
